Day 62–Transformations

ImageAn easy game to warm up the brains of a group of overly tired 8th graders the day after Halloween.  On your turn, you must rotate/reflect/translate the figure to place it on the board.  I was surprised how into it most groups were–many of them turning it into their own version of Tetris.

The game is titled “Entrapment,”  a free download from teacherspayteachers.com. I added in the small pieces as aids for those students who might not be able to visualize the transformation.
